The results of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2017, which were held on May 21, were announced on Sunday.

Students can check their JEE advanced results here.

Steps to check JEE advanced results:

1) Once the page opens, type in your advanced application number, it will be in the form M followed by 9 digits.

2) Key in your date of birth in day, month and year format.

3) Click on Submit

4) Once results are displayed, download and take a printout.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, which was the organiser of the exam, declared the results.

Category-wise All India Ranks (AIR) of successful candidates are also available on the online portal. Candidates will be informed about their results through text messages as well but no individual rank cards will be sent.

At least 1.7 lakh candidates had registered and appeared in it. Candidates, who cleared the JEE (Main) or the first phase of the two-phase exams, were eligible to sit for the JEE-(Advanced).

The performance of a candidate in JEE (Advanced) forms the basis for admission to the bachelor’s, integrated Master’s and dual degree programs (entry at the 10+2 level) in all the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Indian School of Mines (ISM).

The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) will conduct seven rounds of admissions to ensure that every seat in all the IITs is filled this year. Last year, six rounds were conducted instead of the usual two, but 73 of 9660 seats still remained vacant in some of the newer IITs.

This is the third year that the JoSAA is conducting admissions to IITs, National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and other Government-Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs).

There are over 11,0 00 seats available in the 23 IITs across the country.

The answer keys of the exam were released on June 4 and the organising IITs said that all students will be awarded 11 bonus marks for three ‘ambiguous’ questions that were asked in the JEE (Advanced) paper.

There were 18 questions each in Paper 1 and 2 of the JEE (Advanced) 2017.

“Paper 1 covered multiple answers correct type questions, integer type questions, as well as the newly introduced three-column matrix match. Overall Paper 1 of JEE (Advanced) 2017 was designed with a good mixture of conceptual and tricky questions,” an expert said.

“In Paper 2, there were more than one option correct type questions, single option correct type questions, and paragraph type questions with respect to the types of questions. It seemed relatively difficult than Paper 1,” he added.
